On one unlikely night, a dead man is disguised as another dead man and taken to a funeral parlor as part of some plot. Another man is left for dead and taken to the same funeral parlor, but comes to and leaves. This man's 'death' is reported to police, who take the corpse and think it's murder. Confusion reigns, but that's where the fun in this movie is, and there's several oddball characters to add to it.

Zasu Pitts played the same sort of well-meaning airhead she did in http://www.archive.org/details/crooked_circle" rel="nofollow">The Crooked Circle, and Eugene Pallette played the same sort of third-rate detective he did in http://www.archive.org/details/The_Kennel_Murder_Case_1933" rel="nofollow">The Kennel Murder Case. I enjoyed their performances, as well as that of the rest of the cast. Good pacing and directing round it up.

I downloaded the 445MB MPEG4. Aside from missing frames, which affects some dialog, video and audio were fine.
